I'm a bit tired of all the political rants and have been looking for a good movie to watch tonight. It got me thinking that I rarely like Hollywood movies anymore, with the exception of comic book/action movies I don't see much coming from there that entertains me.

With those points in mind, I'm looking for suggestions for movies to watch that I may not have heard of, but you found entertaining. (Also, if you know if it is available on Netflix or somewhere on-line that'd be great too.)

Here's an example of a movie I very much enjoyed but that you may not have heard about:

Drained

This is a Brazilian movie and so, if you don't speak Portuguese, then you'll need to read subtitles. It is a farcical movie about obsession. It is brilliantly written and has great acting. It also is quintessentially Brazilian. If you are open minded and in a silly mood, this is a 5 star gem.

Another one I like has a different take on the whole alien hypothesis. Has some occult and cultic themes too. Pretty good acting and decent cgi for an independent movie.

MIdnight Special

This was actually pretty good.

Right at Your Door

A dirty bomb goes off in Los Angeles, jamming freeways and spreading a toxic cloud.

If you like Denzel:

Déjà vu:
Great movie. Takes a bit to figure out what is going on, but once you get it, it's a fantastic film. On Netflix.

Out of Time:
Another little known gem with Denzel Washington. Great action film with Denzel as a Police Chief who has a few things to hide. On Netflix.

I seen Midnight special and the ending made zero sense to me. it's like one of them movies that they must be running out of funds and make some rush nonsense ending. B movie at best, hardly a "gem".

This is a little known movie, and I thought it was pretty good.

The Man from Earth

On one level I agree with you. It certainly was a B movie in that it wasn't funded by the big studios. I think the meaning was pretty clear though, if not ham handed. I gave up judging movies or books by their ending some time ago as most endings suck, even in great books, like Moby Dick.

I don't know how well known or unknown it is but John Carpenters "In The Mouth of Madness" is freaking awesome.

I made my girlfriend watch it with me and she said it was stupid. Oh well to each his/her own but I think it's a great movie.

I have seen this movie! It is quite the interesting tale. It seems more of a philosophy tract than anything, something to make you think. I rather like how he answers the detraction against his memory with (paraphrased): "do you remember your life a thousand years ago?" And he is right, someone so old would likely not have perfect recall, it would be information overload!

My contribution to the thread shall be ARQ. It is a low(er) budget movie about time travel and a dystopian war of resistance fighters versus a totalitarian government. The time travel mechanism is quite clever!

If you are going to watch one of the Denzel films tonight, watch "Out Of Time" first. It's the better of the two. But just so you know, Out Of Time is an action film, while "Déjà vu" is more Science Fictiony.

I suggest Spectral.

If you haven't seen it do so.

Children of Men is also a good lesser known movie.

The premise is all all women become infertile, and the youngest person is only 18.

The world goes into chaos because of it.

Have you seen

Take shelter

It's the same director and actor that are in midnight special. Good film.

One of my favorite movies. Must see the deleted scenes to fully appreciate the flick.
